Georgina Kincaid possesses much to be desired. Her immortal soul holds a tremendous power of allure to any and all. When combined with her shape-shifting abilities and impressive skills, any other woman pales in comparison. She is a succubus—giving pleasure and taking lives.

As a member of Seattle’s immortal division, led by the infamous arch-demon Jerome, Georgina is tasked with collecting souls for Hell through her succubus activities. Power is everything when dealing with the Devil’s spawn, and Georgina has had to step up to protect her boss, too. When a new threat begins circulating around the immortal community, the stakes are raised to levels that defy the imaginable.

A visiting succubus is becoming a problem with her dedicated pursuits in Georgina’s territory. With the bizarre occurrences of nightly, unidentifiable dream calls into the unknown that turn into near-death experiences for Georgina, something or someone is obviously targeting her for some reason. The odd events and simultaneous unusual visitor arrivals can't be mere coincidence. Too bad hindsight is 20/20.

The arch-demon, angel, nephilim, demons and other lesser immortals assigned to the territory of greater Seattle are in for a shock when they discover who is responsible for the capture of one of their own. Despite the power and magic these immortal beings boast, it will not be enough to save their comrade. However distasteful their last option may be, there is hope if they make a most unexpected—and emphatically temporary—alliance. The fires of Hell might be very well fed by the end of this fiasco.

Richelle Mead continues making terrific leaps and bounds with the advancing Succubus series. The plots are unique, and the overarching storyline bears up throughout the series. Character growth and development builds excitement for what might happen as the story progresses. Mead is also taking one of her main characters in an as-yet unidentified but definitely suggestive direction, fueling the fires of anticipation.

Succubus Shadows follows closely on the heels of Succubus Heat, timed to take place only shortly after the close of its predecessor. As this series circles around the immortal community of demons and other denizens of Hell, Stacia Kane's Demon Inside is comparable novel to the Succubus series for those looking to read more along this theme.
